French Canadian producer showcased his abilities in the dance music world with his new single, “Never Really Get There” featuring Jesse Mac Cormack. The track proves to have potential to be a prominent dance track of the summer.
“Never Really Get There” draws on the alternative electronic dance sounds of CRi and the catchy melodic vocals of Jesse to create a hypnotic track that is impossible to not have on repeat. The melodic lyrics capture the idea of how sometimes expectations you set will never be met, providing an almost familiar yet nostalgic feeling throughout the song.
Speaking of familiar, the song is accompanied with a music video that is quite relatable to all of us. The “Never Really Get There” music video produced by CRi’s sister, Alexa-Jeanne Dubé, portrays a series of people spending time inside their homes. The video was inspired by the lockdown we have all been subject to this past summer and how people are getting through it. CRi explained how the song related to the video, “It’s symbolic for the song, because “Never Really Get There” is about being stuck outside yourself and not being able to get back in.”
CRi has been working extremely hard on his music and it shows to be paying off. His early singles “Rush” and “Don’t” have proven him to be a notable artist in the dance music world along with his nomination for Electronic Release of The Year at the 2018 Juno Awards.
The 2009 heartbreak tune, “Don’t Call” by Canadian trio Desire has been turned into one of the summers hottest dance tracks by electronic producer Guy Gerber. The reimagined single provides an exciting new beat by Guy with the same catchy lyrics we know and love from Desire. The single does a full 360, giving us an uplifting dance-worthy tune for fans to enjoy all summer long. This might not be the first time you have heard this track as it received an incredible reaction when he dropped it in his only live-stream from his home in Rio last month and has also been a popular hit in many of Guy Gerber’s live performances.
Guy Gerber has been working from his home in Rio on a lot of new material for his fans and if it is anything like this rework we can’t wait.

Hailing from East Berlin, Paul Kalkbrenner has long championed the music from his home and from Detroit as being integral to his success as one of techno’s most prominent global players.
In 2016, he released his 3-part ‘Back to the Future’ mixtape series, which saw Paul revisiting the songs of his youth, and compiling them in a mixtape series that’s been listened to millions of times to date. Now, he revisits the sounds of old once more in his ‘Speak Up’ EP.
The EP is classic Kalkbrenner in many ways, sticking to the grand techno sound that rose him to fame. But the EP is also a diversion, with a focus on deep club sounds and vocals like he rarely does.
‘Speak Up’ stands out as one of the deeper tracks that Paul has produced. ‘Eyes Open’ shows clear influence from the Detroit sound of old that lit up dance floors for decades. ‘Laser In’ goes a little darker, with really buzzy synths atop a distorted bass and drum groove. ‘Check Yourself’ exudes similar energy, but with a more refined synth lead and more delicate percussion.

Writing, recording, and producing Let’s All Sing Together themselves in their place of quarantine, they continue to push a message that music needs to have an impact on the world, and that impact can inspire action.
